Quite glad that in spite of so many brainlets around, Bitcoin printed a big fuck you and still did not move from its boring 9200 range. No one wanted realDonaldTrump account! All show. No dough. He doesn’t seem like he’d give a $1 away Yup, this was about Bitcoin, just like I'm also a Runway Model They have to come up with something better than that. Send me $1000 and I’ll send you $2000. I’m good at math. You can just send me $1000 and call it a day.

Russian hackers Fake money doesn’t count Two questions: 1. Could this have been an 'inside' job? 2. Was this a 'test' for the real 'event' to come later? Notice how they didn’t want US dollars? Maybe because they (dollars) are worthless ? Rubbles exchanges for Bitcoins. Yep...that who it was...uh huh...🙄🙄🤣🤣. Might want to ask jack about that!

Bitcoin is filled with fraud,scammers, and profiteers. Stay far away from the con game these scammers play. I honestly hope no one is dense enough to fall for such an obvious bitcoin scam and realizes someone hacked those account. Also how in blazes did a group hack Twitter accounts like that? Idiots should have better passwords!!!! 🙄
